You cannot completely delete a global policy. Using the Delete option on the global policy only resets the global policy to the default settings, which do not include support for any external user access options.

To reset the global policy to the default settings

  1. From a user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group (or has equivalent user rights), or is assigned to the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click External User Access, click External Access Policy.

  4. On the External Access Policy tab, click the global policy, click Edit, and then click Delete.

  5. When prompted to confirm the deletion, click OK. A message appears at the top of the page informing you that the global policy has been reset.
